Cupboard Under Stairs are very handy indeed!

Having a built in wardrobe is great for best use of space as floor to ceiling space is utilised and no need to purchase a wardrobe for exact fit!

We have done quite a few of these now and here is a picture of a recent cupboard under the stairs that was built to use space in a living room.

A door was sourced to match other doors (apart from the one leading into the garage that you can see on this pic) and coving was fitted to match the existing coving.

Costs including all materials and labour are usually around £450 so it’s probably cheaper than you think to make use of wasted space!
